It's hair today and gone tomorrow for one Colyton man, as he had his chest and back waxed for charity - raising over £500.Harold White, 58, of Gribblemead, was stripped of much of his body hair - and modesty - for Children with Leukaemia last week.The now smooth-bodied customer assistant at the Coop, in Seaton, agreed to undergo the ordeal as part of the company's fundraising campaign.He said: "It didn't really hurt but I wouldn't pay to do it again! But, if someone were to ask me to do it again for charity, I would."Mr White, who admitted he found it all a bit embarrassing, refused to comment if it had been a hit with the ladies.But other staff members enjoyed watching Mr White's treatment, and some even seemed quite impressed with the outcome.Assistant Diane Hawker highlighted that the venture was all for a good cause. She said: "Children with Leukaemia helps to give these affected children a chance."It's particularly unfortunate to have cancer at such a young age and it must be very hard for the families. I think it really hits home when children are involved.
